Meet the team
Updated: 20 Feb 2017
The vision of the Housing Executive is one in which housing plays its part in creating a peaceful, inclusive, prosperous and fair society.
Our Community Cohesion team’s work is aimed at building better relations, cohesive communities and neighbourhoods that are safe and welcoming to all. This work takes place all year round but Community Relations and Cultural Awareness Week is an opportunity for us to celebrate that work and to celebrate diversity.
That’s why, during Community Relations Week, we will introduce you to the team as well as highlighting and celebrating the pioneering and award-winning work of the team and showcase the many excellent community-led good relations projects the organisation supports.
Jennifer Hawthorne is the Head of Communities for the Housing Executive and leads the team with Deirdre Crawford, the Neighbourhood and Cohesion Manager. They are ably supported by Christine Boyle, Administrative Support and Laureen McFaul, Finance Support.
Meet our Good Relations Officers (GROs), Eddie Breslin, GRO for West and Causeway; John Read, GRO for East area and South Antrim; Michelle Hazlett (front), GRO for South area; Christine Davis, Belfast, Assistant Neighbourhood and Cohesion Manager for Lisburn and Castlereagh and Marilyn Giboney, GRO for South and mid Ulster
